Album Review
Andy S
Reviewed 2010-11-15
Lo-fi acoustic folk-pop with vox that could only be indie. What if the Neutral Milk Hotel guy were really, really into Bob Dylan and didn't care who knew? Production-wise, a very similar sound to NMH, with raspier vocals; but everything's generally lighter (well yeah) and twangier. In it's folkier moments it's home-recorded Dylan tribute, in the more indie parts it's Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, but mostly it strikes a happy medium. Start with 6. FCC safe. –Andy

*1 - (4:56) grinds to a start; bouncy Dylanesque ramble with horns and electric guitar on the quick refrains
*2 - (3:02) fun, soulful folk-rock; gets real quiet for a little at about three quarters through
3 - (4:17) Clap Your Hands Say Yeah; wistful pop with catchy little synth and glockenspiel riffs
4 - (2:52) sweet and mellow folk ballad
*5 - (3:02) bouncy indie rock; is that riff from the keyboard cat video?
**6 - (4:33) sinister and weird rock with a striking electric bass part
*7 - (5:21) chill pop with some cool inter-verse electric parts
8 - (3:40) sad indie with electric piano and twangy electric guitars
*9 - (4:19) straightforward, upbeat folk; kind of a much grimier M. Ward
10 - (4:29) soft and whiny indie folk-pop
11 - (2:30) glockenspiel-backed wistful ambler
12 - (2:38) sad pop with lots of little instrumental flourishes
13 - (3:30) mellow but determined ballad, clearer acoustic guitar and piano
